Boston bombings: American in Arabia says swap finger pointing for Arab-style community spirit
4.00 7

I couldn't agree more with the author of this article. The bombing of the Twin Towers was quite different from the bombs in Boston. I don't know why anyone would think that the American people are pointing fingers at the Arabic community style functions/gatherings??? In fact, I'd be the first person to say that I personally know Arabs working in my area, that I speak to. We have an Islamic church right down the street. Never ever has there been any violence. I have a respect for all people until such time that they try to infringe upon the rights of others. I have posted comments for nearly a year on articles written about Arabic people (regardless of which country they live in). As Americans living in a Nation under God, we try very hard to respect the rights of all people regardless of their ethnic background, religious viewpoints, etc. What do Americans have to gain by finger pointing at Saudi Arabia or other Arabic countries? And if there were a handful who did, would that make it okay for an Arabic country to set off bombs in a community setting? I don't even know what to say. It was tragic that it happened. We don't know why or who, just where. Most Americans abhor violence (myself included). This act of vengeance by whomever, is just to senseless.
